Bottle shared by Jay at the post NotB tasting, thanks! Poured black with a dark brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had a pretty strong coffee note with some roasted malts and a bit of chocolate as well as a light hint of bourbon. Flavor had smooth roasted malts with a strong coffee note but not much bourbon. Wish the bourbon would have come out a bit more on the tongue.

Bottle that I took to the hotel tasting after Night of the Barrels at EBF. Pours a deep black with a thin tanned beige head. Chocolate, coffee, light booze. Big chocolate, toast, coffee, but not much of the barrel. Plenty of roast though, chewy chocolate, pudding. Long roast and chewy chocolate brownies on the finish.

Tasted this at Hunaphus release. Ive had a bunch of Mikkeller beers, not a lot of barrel aged ones, but this one was sort of just like the original version. A little bit of oaky flavor, but it didnt really wow me all that much. Im glad I was able to try it though.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Originally at Hunahpu Day 2011, 500ml bottle, great frothy head, not a ton of aroma for a bourbon barrel aged brew, really kinda disappointed with this one, nice for a stout. Very disappointing if you consider it an Imperial. Had this later on, pours the same frothy head, sweet vanilla aroma, a bit of chocolate, and roasted coffee. Smooth with a nice bit of bourbon vanilla and hotness coming out. I dont know if my palate was just dead when I tried it before, but this is dang delicious.

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Naboen, Bergen. Quickly fading tanned head with a near black body. Aroma is distinct vanilla, somewhat faint roasted malts, coffee and of course some bourbon, not much though. Surprisingly light-bodied / light drinkable and medium carbonation. Really nice profile with lots of roasted flavors hand in hand with coffee, vanilla, hops and a sweetness from the bourbon. Smooth as hell, nicely balanced and quite good!

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2011 Bottle with baby streets and grandpa. Pours pitch black with nice off white lacing that sits atop my beer the entire time. Aroma is coffee, roast, chocolate and espresso. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy notes of chocolate, espresso, coffee, vanilla.
